I read it last year in school for a project and i absolutly LOVED it!! I litteraly sat at home ALL DAY reading it so i could get to the end and find out what happened; and i really dont like to read, but i was hooked on this book! I even read it at lunch to get more time in in reading it and my friends would laugh at me but i didnt care i was so into it, reading that book i felt like i was right there and seeing everything. Lucas seeemed so 'dreamy' and absolutly delishhh'<3[lol] i wish he was a real person so i could meet him, hes so laid back and real, it sounds crazy but i had a personal connection to him THREW the book! haah! You have NOT lived until you read this book. And when i got to the end, omg it was so sad i was like crying. That was the first book that I really got into and acually made me emotional in some way so that really made me love this book. 3 cheers for you kevin brooks!
